Honestly, the pickup that comes standard would probably work just fine, if not though, try one of the vintage noisless ones I guess.

Either would work, if your more on the classic rock/blues side then I would go with the strat, if your more on the classic rock-punky/indie type rock, then I would go with the Tele. But both would be just fine for what you play. Honestly, for what you play, the type of the guitar, strat or tele, is gonna be much more important then the pickup. If you really want a tele, and really want a new pickup, like I said before, go with one of the vintage noisless ones.

What kind of money are you planning to spend? There are many more (and better) options outside of lace sensor/fender pups.

I guess if you only have 500 and really want a tele you could try to find this combo, I assume you mean US dollars.

it is a little more then 500, so you will have to fork over a little more, but if you can, it should work great.

First of all, are you asking for tele pup recommendations or whether to get a strat or tele? If you want more of a mayer tone, get a strat. If you want a keith richards, jimmy page, muddy waters tone, get a tele.

Second of all, a standard mim tele will cost $300 used. That's $200 for new pups, there are some fabulous ones in that price range. The fender pickups are mediocre, unless you want to get nocasters or custom shops.

I'll also agree with the new amp, but you'll hear differences between pickups through any amp

The fender noiseless pickups are great pickups, so I wouldn't go as far as saying there mediocre. I agree, if you want more of a blues/rock tone, go with the strat, then get a set of the noiseless pickups, they cost about 150 for the whole set of 3 pickups, and you got yourself a blues-rock machine.

The original bridge pickup should work fine. If you are going to change the pickups I recommend routing for a middle pickup then putting a strat pickup there. Then you have to install a five way switch. That will help expand its sound.
